Five years ago today, I published my first post here on Hack Education. The origin story of the blog is one that I’ve told a lot – I was a tech blogger, editors didn’t want me to write about ed-tech, they couldn't stop me, blah blah blah. Kin tells the story too, since we’d just started dating when we purchased the domains and I’m amazed at what both of those sites, and by extension our lives, have become.

I realize that the traditional fifth anniversary gift is wood, but maybe you could consider something else. Remember: the work I do here is funded, in part, through the donations of readers. You can support my work via Patreon or Paypal.

Thank you all for putting up with Hack Education for the past five years. Here’s to many more years of ed-tech doomsaying.
